More allegations of abuse at UCI


7 officers placed on
leave, 4 nurses fired
in a third reported
local prison incident

BY TERESA STONE-
IRWIN
Telegraph Staff Writer
Following new allegations
of the beating of an inmate at
Union Correctional Institution
between Aug. 15 and Aug.
16, Florida Department of'
Corrections Secretary Walt
McNeil ordered the Inspector
General's Office to launch a
full investigation.
The investigation led to the
discovery that on Aug. 15, a
47-year-old white male inmate
allegedly threw feces at a
correctional, officer, after which


he was removed from his cell
and assaulted numerous times
by staff members over a two-
day period.
In a press conference held
on Aug. 21, McNeil stated that
the incident came to light more
than a day after the alleged
abuse took place when a DOC
employee reported the inmate's
injuries.
At first, the inmate claimed
he had been injured in a
fall. It was only after he had
transported outside the prison
for medical care that he said he
had been beaten.
"We suspected all along that
the injuries.were not consistent
with a fall," said McNeil. "The
inmate's injuries ar6 serious and
are' reprehensible. I'm grateful
to the employee for acting
appropriately in reporting this
horrendous incident." .
Four UCI correctional


officers and two sergeants
were placed on leave pending
results of the investigation.
In addition, one contract and
three temporary nurses were
dismissed for failure to report
the abuse.
The officers placed on leave
were Lt. Bennett Kilgore, Sgt.
Aaron Coleman, Sgt. Eugene
McLemore, Officer John
Carter, Officer Sean Johnson,
Officer Derek Philip Gibstein
and Officer John A. Thomas.
The names of the nurses fired
were Catherine Collinwood,
Tony Davis, Alicia Bettylou
Forsyth and Zelda Mae Lee.
In an earlier statement
released to the press, McNeil
,had said he intended to bring'
the full resources of the agency
to bear on the individuals
responsible for the violent '
assault, including prosecution,,
termination and decertification,:


so they can never work in a
correctional environment
again.
"There is rino place in our
profession for this depraved
mindset," McNeil said.
McNeil said the vast majority
of the 28,000 employees in
the system are responsible,
and noted that staff members
reported the beating to their
superiors. The inmate, whose
name was not released
citing federal health laws on
confidentiality, was said to be
incarcerated for drug offenses.
This is latest of several
incidents where abuse has
been alleged
/This is the second, reported
incident of abuse of an inmate
by UCI correctional officers
in the past four months. Yet
another allegation of abuse took
place at neighboring Florida


State Prison in April.
Five correctional officers at
FSP werefired and one resigned
following an alleged April
8 beating of an unidentified
inmate in solitary confinement
that was caught on camera.
The officers-a lieutenant,
three sergeants and two
officers-who apparently
thought the video cameras
weren't working following a
Power outage, pulled the inmate
from his cell and beat him.
The dismissed officers were Lt.
William Hinson, Sgt. Anthony
Reed, Sgt. James Coleman,
Sgt. Richard Kross and Officer
Raymond Williams. Officer
Charles . Reames resigned
before being dismissed.
In an unrelated incident at
Union Correctional Institution
the following day, April 9,
four correctional officers were

LBMS to experiment

with same-sex classes

BY TERESA STONE IRWIN
Thnes Staff Writer
This school year begins a pilot program at Lake Butler
Middle School involving seventh-grade students.
According to school guidance counselor Bob Peeling,
research into same- sex classrooms was conducted and
showed a significant increase in student learning.
The middle school will be implementing such a program
for seventh-grade social studies and science classes this year
to determine if it benefits students by helping them stay
focused and on track.

manned the breakfast
line when school district
employees returned to
work last week. Breakfast
was followed by a
meeting during which the .
foundation gave away - l
thousands of dollars.

Members of the Bradford County Education Foundation rolled up their sleeves and served breakfast to hundreds
of returning school employees, and that was just the beginning. At the school district's back-to-school meeting last
week, the foundation gave away tens of thousands of dollars it had raised for local education, including $19,000 in
classroom mini-grants to support innovative teaching programs. The foundation is also supporting.implementation
of the Positive Behavioral Support program by giving schools $2.50 for each high school and middle school
student enrolled this year and $1.50 for each elementary school child. The total award' was around $8,000. The
Bradford-Union Career Technical Center was given $1,000 to purchase lumber for its construction program and
oxygen for the welding program. Another $500 was pledged by the foundation in support of the annual spelling
bee, and finally, the foundation is giving $5 to every student at each elementary school so they can purchase books
from their school's book fair. That was worth another $8,000, bringing the total amount of money given or pledged
by the Bradford County Education Foundation to more than $36,000.


I School principals Bill McRae, Ernest Williams, Doug Thoburn, Rich Stephens,
David Tew, CindyDeValerlo and Lynn Melvin received donations to help

Starke commission election is Tuesday


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
TelegrIaph Editor
Voters from Starke District
4 will have an important
decision to make this Tuesday
as they go to the polls to select
their representative on the city
commission for the next four
years.
Polls will be open at Starke
City Hall from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
on Tuesday, Sept. 1. City hall is
located at 209 N. Thompson St.
There are two candidates in
the District 4 race.
Commissioner - Tommy
Chastain is seeking reelection.
He touts the commission's
accomplishments, including
reducing the city workforce
without a reduction in services,
upgrading the electric system,
establishing a fuel adjustment
stabilization account, lowering
fire insurance ratings, ongoing


upgrades to the sewer system,
paving streets, and supporting
successful events downtown.
goingg forward, Chastain said
he wants to work with the county
on consolidating some services
and with municipal partners to
lower electric bills.
"This won't happen overnight,
but I am committed to focusing
on viable options," Chastain
said.
He has also talked about
revamping the city retirement
system to save noney and
working toward future projects
that include placing an outdoor
amphitheater at the old power
plant site.
Chastain has billed himself as
the commissioner who tells it like
it is. His opponent, Jimmy Epps,
is calling himself "the people's
choice" and is hoping that voters
looking for change will turn out
and vote for him.


"The purpose of my candidacy
is simply the high cost of utilities
and how some of the city
commissioners vote on utility
contracts and other items that
are not reviewed or understood,
causing part of the financial
mess we are experiencing in the
city," said Epps, who is a former
city police chief.
In meeting with voters of the
district, he has heard they are tired
of high utility bills, including
the often misunderstood fuel
adjustment charge, and believe
commissioners don't understand
these matters themselves. Some
don't even know their city
commissioner.
"If I am your commissioner,
you will know me and I will
know you," Epps said.
As of Aug. 2, there were 547
voters in Starke District 4.

is licensed general contractor,

as well as skyscrapers. He said
if metal building experience
was. a requirement of awarding
the bid, that requirement should
have been disclosed in the bid

Carter said that he understood,
the point and that's why he didn't
want to infer anything negative
by talking about references and
experience. What the county
was looking for, however, was a

SDo you have tropical
soda apple in your
pasture?

A COLUMN BY TIM
WILSON
Bradford ExtensidI Director

Tropical
soda apple
(Solanum
viarum) is
an invasive
weed that
�is . common
throughout i
Florida, and i
can infest a
pasture in .
as little as
two years.
Tropical soda apple reduces
-forage production and lowers
:,stocking rates. Obviously, this is'
an invasive weed we do not want
hanging around our farms.
Tropical soda apple can reach
heights of three to six feet. It is
a broad-leafed plant with thorns
up to 0.4 inches long and its
fruit looks like a small round
watermelon when immature then
turns yellow at maturity. Tropical
soda apple has white flowers
with yellow stamens and usually
blooms from September to May.
Found in typically wet soils,
TSA is usually concentrated in
common feeding and lounging
areas within a pasture.

The Able Trust, also known as
the Florida Governor's Alliance
for the Employment of Citizens
with Disabilities, is a public-
private partnership foundation
established by the Florida
Legislature in 1990. Its mission
is to be the leader in providing
Floridians with disabilities
fair employment opportunities
through grant programs, public
awareness, policy review ahd


control methods are available for
tropical soda apple. Herbicides
such as Milestone and Forefront
have been used-ro-control dense
stands o(f'l :' .15ct-emergent

can be used in combination
with mowing. Biological control
methods such as the TSA beetle
have been used for the. past
several years with some success;
however, it is not efficient in
controlling dense stands of TSA.
To control the spread of tropical
soda apple, pasture managers
should clean equipment when
leaving infested pastures. When
buying cattle, they should be
quarantined for more than six
days to allow any seeds in their
gut to be expelled in a controlled
area before being released to
pasture. (Source: UF/IFAS EDIS

recommendations, public
education, and fundraising.
Since its establishment, The
Able Trust has awarded more
than $24 million to individuals
with disabilities and nonprofit
agencies throughout Florida for
employment-related purposes,
enabling more than 2,000 Florida
citizens with disabilities to enter
the workforce each year.

Camp Cherry

Lake memories

will last a

lifetime
4-H Camp Cherry Lake in
Madison was host to 43 Bradford
County youth the week of July
13. The kids spent five days and
four nights swimming, meeting
others, developing skills such as
independence and cooperation,
learning about their environment,
and-most of all-having a great
time.
Teen counselors prepared for
this event foi months prior to
participating. They attended a
weekend certification program
and a series of meetings
throughout the spring. Campers,
ages 8-12, were assigned to
cabins with at least one trained
teen counselor. All youth learned
a great deal about getting along
with others, making decisions,
working as a team and being
responsible.
There were eight college-age
resident staffers that ,provided
camp structure and enthusiasm.
Counselors led songs, taught
activities and monitored the flow
of the week. They also- played'
a critical role as mentors and
friends.


FHP enforcing

Move Over

Law
"Move Over Florida!" It's not
just common sense and courtesy,
it's the law. Florida Highway
Patrol Troop B Commander,
Mai. Richard Carpenter has
announced FHP will target
violators of the Move Over Law
from today through Sept. 7.
The Move Over Law requires
drivers to move over one lane
whenever a emergency vehicle or
tow truck on the side of the road
has its lights activated. If moving
over is not a viable option,drivers
must simplyslow down tcdfmph
below the posted speed limit.
"It is not only important that
we enforce the traffic laws, but
also that we make every effort
to educate drivers to make them
aware of what those laws are," said
Carpenter. "Florida's emergency
workers have families that expect
to see them home safely at the
end of their shift. We owe them
the opportunity to perform their
duties without being struck by a
passing motorist."
Florida adopted the law in
2002 in recognition of the several
occasions when emergency
response personnel were killed


or injured while stopped on
the side of the highway. In the
past decade, more than 150 law
enforcement officers nationwide
have been killed by passing
motorists while performing their
duties on our highways.
The Move Over Law
enforcement effort is part of a
series where the Florida Highway
Patrol focuses on a specific traffic
law and cites anyone caught
violating that law. The series is
called "Be Smart, Drive Smart
Florida!" The Florida Highway
Patrol is partnering with law
enforcement agencies across the
state from now through Labor
Day to raise awareness and
enforcement of the Move Over
Law. During the operation, law
enforcement officers will work
together along busy highways
and interstates to stop those who
violate the law.

Starke and rec board talk program fees


Some programs cut

BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The Starke City Commission
approved a .partial list of
recreation programs last week,
and it will readdress the list
and fee schedule following its
meeting -with the county on
recreation funding.
Other programs were- cut
entirely.
Topping the list of eliminated
programs was basketball, which
had 87 participants, according
to Fiscal Year 2007-08 numbers.
Also on the chopping block were
soccer (just 14 participants), flag
football (26 participants), and the
pilot kiddie camp for 3- to 5-year
olds (17 participants).
With the exception of
basketball, these were the
least popular programs. The
recommendation to cut them
came from the recreation board.
Programs recommended
for continuation included the
$10-a-week after-school camp,
the summer day camp, adult
softball (summer- and fall),
summer softball, Babe . Ruth
baseball and softball (spring and
fall), and the senior citizens club.
The city commission could not
definitively set participant fees
for most of the programs without
knowing what, if any, amount the


county commission was going to
contribute to fund recreation.
The city has approached the
county for support, not only for
the construction of a new facility,
but for ongoing operational costs
based on the fact that 70 percent
of rec program participants live
outside the city limits.
Without that support, the
city commission is considering
raising fees for participants who
live outside of the city, perhaps by
as much as 50 percent or more.
The fee schedule presented to
the commission for approval did
not include those higher fees,
however. The recommended fees
were as follows:
* After-school club for ages
6-13-$90 a semester per
child ($10 a week) plus the $10
application fee. It runs from
August to May, with registration
taking place during the summer
period.
* Summer day camp for ages
6-17-$300 per child for -the
eight-week program, which runs
from June through August.
* Babe Ruth baseball and
softball-$75 per participant
ages 4-17 for the 8-week spring
league, which runs from March
through May. Register in January
and February.
* Babe Ruth baseball and
softball-$50 per participant
o ages 4-17 for the 6-week fall
league, which takes place in
October and Novenmber. Register


in August and September.
* Summer softball-$45 for the
six-week league for participants
ages 4-17, which takes place in
June' and July. Register March
through May.
* Adult softball-$15 per
player ages 13 and up, plus the
$15 per game umpire fee. A
$7.50 scorekeeper fee is optional.
These fees apply to the six-week
summer league, which takes
place in July and August, and the
six-week fall league, which takes
place in September and October.
Register in the weeks leading up
to each season.
* Senior citizens club-a year
round program that is free to
participants.
The board could not postpone
approval of the entire list because
the after-school program had
been advertised and was set to
begin. Commissioner Carolyn
Spooner moved to approve the
afterschool program and fees for
the first semester only, which the
board approved 4-0.
The remaining items will be
addressed following the city's
workshop with the county
commission, which took place
this week. (See related story.)
There was discussion about
whether the fees proposed,
regardless of the participants'
addresses, were enough to cover
the city's costs. Commissioner
Travis Woods said participants
should be charged enough to


City, county sit down to discuss recreation


BY MARK J. CRAWFORD
Telegraph Editor

The city of Starke did not
receive a blank check from the
Bradford County Commission
to support recreation, although
the county has pledged in-kind
services and potential future
support for a new recreation
facility ard recreational
programming,
The joint meeting of the
commissions Monday began
with bad news as the possibility
that both boards could -pursue
Community Development Block
Grants to fund the recreation
faciliit. unra'vellr_ TJough
eligible or ' p - To $750,000,
Christa Pusateri of Bailey, Bishop
and Lane, a civil engineering
and planning firm, said that
without rule changes, the county
would not be able to apply for
that money with the intention of
spending it on a project within
the city limits.
The city is eligible for up to
$700,000 in CDBG money, or it
would be if it could close out its
current CDBG grant for sewer
work before the end:of the year,
which does not seen likely.
The hope was that both
boards pursuing funds on a joint
recreation project would increase
the chances for funding.
Then architect Paul Stressing
brought the boards up to date
on the designs for the proposed
building, which include a pared
down $800,000 version with
room to grow as well as tlhe
original "master plan" that would
cost more than $1 million to
construct.
The county discussed the
budgetary issues it was facing,
including lost revenue and its
current reliance on funding
reserves to close out the current
year and balance next year's
budget. But with talk of funding
restrictions came some creative,
if not downright strange,
ideas. For example, given the
Department of Community
Affairs rule against the county
spending grant funds in the city
limits, it was suggested that the
site at Edwards Road where the
city plans to build the facility be
detached from the city limits.
Doing so would require


the consent of some adjacent
landowners as well, all of who
would lose their city residency-
something they might gladly
give up along with paying taxes
to the city.
It was pointed out that the city
was not the only government
coming up short of funds to build
facilities. County Commissioner
Ross Chandler mentioned that.
cuts in state funding means
additional money the county was
expecting to construct a senior
*center was not coming. That has
left the county with a $500,000
grant it might have to return.
This, too, got wheels turning
as Chrissy Allen, a recreation
board member, suggested the
projects be combined. After all,
the recreation department has a
program for senior citizens, she
said.
Aside from the fact that the
combining the projects would
involve meshing two quite
different objectives-providing
a recreation space for youth and
a social sanctuary for senior
citizens-there were some
other logistical issues with the
suggestion. First, the county's
matching contribution for the
grant was the land it owns behind
the health department.
This revived talk of giving
the Edwards Road property up
to the county so it could be used
as a substitute for the health
department land, but the second
issue was the lack of guarantee
that any suggested changes in
county's plans.for that grant
money wouldn't result in the
state snatching the funds.
Still, City Commissioner
Carolyn Spooner promoted the'
idea of a joint facility, saying
seniors . could, even become
involved as youth mentors.
Mayor Wilbur Waters said
even if a construction solution
could be found, that was just
the beginning. Money would
be needed to staff the facility,
maintain it, pay for utilities and
insurance;, etc. Grants won't
cover those costs, he said.
Because 'the percentage of
county residents of outside
the city limits participating in
recreation is so disproportionate,
the city is considering raising
the fees for those participants.


Waters said this could make
participation unaffordable for
many families.
When this was discussed, no
specific objection was raised,
although County Commissioner
Eddie Lewis pointed out that
the county had upheld its
responsibilities under prior
interlocal agreements without
expecting more from the city
when the cost of providing
services went up.
Chandler said there were a
number of interlocal issues the
county and city work on that
need to be addressed. Recreation
in the city is one of them. At the
same time, people arFelooking to
the county comiiis'siOn to move
services like recreation out into
the county.. These things are
going to take time, particularly
when they involve locating
revenue and building new costs
into the budget, he said.
Asked if the boards would be
willing to support a tax increase
to support recreation,, neither
set of commissioners seemed
interested. Such a thing would
only be possible with the consent
of taxpayers, they said, and
putting such questions on a ballot
is usually not successful.
In the end, all the county
commission could promise right
now were in-kind services if
the city undertakes a recreation
construction project. Both sides,
however, expressed mutual
appreciation over the willingness
to work together on this and other
issues.


cover costs. That has not been
the case, and as far as the after-
school program is concerned,
$10 a week is the most that can
be charged unless the city's
program and employees are
certified in childcare, according
to 6 Recreation Department
Director Alica McMillian.
They disagreed over whether
or not the city was losing money
by supporting recreation. Woods
pointed to the money that the
city was putting into recreation
that was not being recouped
through user fees and was thus
not available to be used-in other
areas.
For example, in 2007-08 user
fees for the summer, program-
$30,400-did not cover all of the
program's expenses. According
to the recreation department,
almost $22,000 more was needed
from the city budget to cover the
program. Charging $345 per
participant instead of $200 would
have made up the city's costs.
Spring baseball andf softball
was the most popular program,
and'according to the recreation
department, the city had to
contribute almost $40,000, while
user fees set at $75 per participant
only brought in around $23,000.
The city would have had to more
than doable fees to close to $185
per participant in order to totally
cover its costs.
Similar hikes in, user fees


would be needed to reduce the
city's contribution to rc(rcetion.
Otherwise the city-or the city
and county working together-
will have to decide ho\\ uch
program fees can continual t he
offset by'taxpayer dollars.
The recommendations conmi ng
out of the city commission's last
workshop were also approlx d by
the board. This included having
the attorney draft revisions to
the recreation ordinance tcat
clarify the recreation hard is
an advisory board and not a
special government district, and
providing that revenue from
recreation department programs
and fundraisers be deposited in a
special account controlled b Ihe
commission, not the rec board.
The changes will not he
in effect until the ordinance
revisions are formally approved.
One concern of the recreation
department was alleviated
when the. commission officially
designated around $630,00)0 et
aside for a new recreation facility
specifically for that purpose.
The designation is not binding.
meaning that it can he changed if
the need arises, but it does offer
some assurance thatthe money
that was said to be eaarmarked
for building construction \\ill
ultimately be used for that
purpose.

Thomas retires after lifetime of serving community


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Times Staff Writer


One day, while.-reviewing
the estimated Social Security
benefits -she would receive
upon retirement, Doris Thomas
said she realized it shows that
she has a 46-year work history.
"I started thinking about it,"
she said. "Lord, that's a long
time. I'm ready to retire."
' Thomas did just that, retiring
from her position at the Union
County Housing Authority on
Aug. 20.
Her long career leading to a
life of social services first began
at King Memorial Hospital in
Lake Butler when she was just
16 years old. Thomas said she
worked flex shift as a nurse's
aid and as a helper in the kitchen
where she took care of patient
food trays, changing bed linens
and cleaning rooms.
She then worked at the
University of Florida Bookstore
in Gainesville for about a
year before her application
at Lerner's Dress Shop was
approved. She started out
working the floor in sales, but
the head cashier position soon
came open and the position was
offered to Thomas.
She came back to work
locally at Lake Butler Apparel,
but during a pregnancy, she
found standing on her feet for
long hours to be difficult and
had to quit her job.
Not one to sit still for long,
Thomas began volunteering
during the summer feeding
program for children that
used to take place during the
weekdays at the Lake Butler
Community Center, but has
since moved to the individual
schools.
"I really enjoyed it, big
belly and all, out there running
around playing with all those
kids;" Thomas said.
Through contacts she made
while volunteering, she was
recommended for a job at
Suwannee River Economic
Council for a new pilot
homemaker's program. It was
here that Thomas began to
realize she had a knackfor social


services work. She began her
more than 12 year career with
DCF as a case manager, going
into client's homes to assist
them with dressing, feeding
and light housekeeping.
Enjoying being able to
help others, Thomas said she
actually got into trouble for
going above and beyond what
she was supposed to.
She explained, "Other case
workers would report me. For
instance, I might fill in for
another employee's client one
day and when they came back
to work, the client would tell
them all the stuff I did-simple
things not necessarily on the
checklist of services such as
sweeping the porch, and my co-
workers would report me."
The best Thomas could tell,
her co-workers were upset
because she was unintentionally
making them look bad.
"They were content to go to
a client's residence and just sit
there and not do anything. If I
saw a need, Ifigured why not?
I wasn't spending any more
time there than I was supposed
to, so how can I get into trouble
for helping people?"
Eventually, Thomas was
promoted to the program's
director and the first thing she
did in her new position was
change the "checklist only"
way of doing things for case
managers.
While working at SREC,
Thomas also worked a
second job at the Handy Way
convenience store (now called
the.Kangaroo store) on S.R. 121
in Lake Butler. She had worked
there just over two years when
the store was robbed while she
was on duty.
Not only did she quit the job
after that, she described the
ordeal as something that took
10 years off her life.
She was working the store
one night with another female
cashier when two black men
barged into the store with one
carrying what looked to her
like a machine gun, but was
actually a .306.
"'They came in screaming,
hollering and cursing at us
and made us\get down on the


floor," Thomas said. "All I kept
thinking about was that I was
never going to see my kids
again."
The ladies completely
cooperated with the robbers,
who got the money from the
cash register and fled the store.
Not before Thomas got a good
look at them, though.
She remained visibly shaken
by the ordeal when one day
then Union County Sheriff John
Whitehead asked her father
how she was holding up.
When Whitehead was told
Thomas wasn't doing too well,
he invited her to stop by and
see him so he could talk to her.
Thomas said Whitehead
put his arms around her and
told her he knew she and her
14 siblings were raised with
brothers who were taught to
respect women. In her naivete,
she expected all black men to
treat other black women the
same way. She laughs about it
now, but it seemed to Thomas
that when the robbers walked
in the door and saw a black girl,
they should have changed their
minds and walked out.
"Welcome to the real world,
where you've got people out
there that don't care about you,
your color, or who your mama
is," Whitehead told her.
Once they were caught,
Thomas was all too happy to
identify the suspects in court.
"I was so mad when I saw them
sitting there," she said.
"When they robbed us, one
of them had braided hair, but in
the courtroom, he had his hair
all blown out. I knew what he
was trying to do, but I pointed
right at him and said, 'he's
the one that had the gun and
pointed at the other guy and
said, 'he's the one that took the
money out of the register.'"
Apparently the incident
ended up putting Thomas on
fire for keeping bad guys where
they should be because she then
went to work for New River
Correctional Institution. After
close to four years, 'she was
offered a job at the Department
of.Children and Families (then
known as HRS).
At her office in Lake City,


Doris Thomas Is pictured with her staff at the Union County Housing Authority just
days before retirement. (L-R) were Karen Snyder, Jeannette Stoltman, Doris Thomas
(seated), Dwight Regar, Kevin Blanton, Alvin Jones and Buddy Austin. Not pictured
was employee Dave Fabalto.


Thomas started out as a public
assistance specialist before
being first promoted to a senior
public assistance specialist,
then as acting supervisor, and
eventually a welfare fraud
investigator. Thomas said the
welfare fraud investigator
was a new pilot program at
the time and she was sent to
St. Petersburg for training at
Kentucky University. After
one year of experience, she
was able to apply for a license
as a certified state of Florida
investigator.
At one point during her 16-
year career at DCF, Thomas
said she remembers her five
kids were grown and finally
leaving the house. "I was
dancing around the hallway
saying, I'm going to be free
at last and travel and enjoy
myself."
In a case of what her pastor
called empty nest syndrome,
Thomas said she felt compelled
to sign up for foster care
training, thinking she wanted
to be a foster mom. She was
just about to have some babies
placed with her when she took


pause and told them to hold off
so she could make sure it was
what she wanted to do.
'That's when my sister-in-
law got killed by a drunk driver
on her way to the hospital to
give birth and I took in my two
nephews," Thomas said.
"Of'course, there was no
way to tell how the kids were
going to react to losing their
mother," Thomas said, "so I
had no idea what I would be
facing." She said that for a
while, the children would have
nightmares every night and
she and her own older children
would get up to soothe them
and rock them back to sleep.
When a job opening came
up with DCF in Lake Butler,
Thomas said she took a
demotion and a cut in pay to
return to a public assistance
specialist so she could be closer
to home with the children who
desperately needed her. Thomas
also adopted two great-nieces
who were removed from their
parents' home by DCF.
In 2004, Thomas lost her
husband, Eddie Thomas, to


cancer, followed by her sister,
Amanda Sirmones, who died of
breast cancer in 2006. Thomas
then took on the task of raising
her sister's three children.
Tragedy struck again in 2008,
when her daughter, Patrica
Edenfield; died of breast
cancer.
Currently still living with
her, are four children: three
who are attending Lake Butler
Elementary School and one
who is at Union County High
School. She is also known as
"Nana" to her"l5 grandchildren:
The oldest is 22, two are 19,
three are 18, three are 15, two
are 13, one is 11, and one
is two. She also has a set of
month-old twins as her newest
grandchildren.
"So you see, I'm ready to
retire and spend time with the
kids," Thomas said. "And now,
I'm going to be at the schools
so much they are going to think
I work there."
A call to the Union County
Housing Authority named'
Latonya McBride as the new'
director.

After an extensive time in prayer, consideration and 46 years in the work
field, I made the decision to retire my position as executive director with the
Union County Housing Authority effective Aug. 16.
Although retiring, I will still be available with a willingness to assist the people
in the community in any way I can. As I pondered about ending this chapter
of-my life, I strongly felt a sense of being as I begin to close one chapter
in my life and embrace a new one. I believe this new chapter will open up
an avenue that I've never experienced. I am truly looking forward to the
adventure and journey that awaits me.
I will never forget the people-professionally and personally-who have
provided guidance to me over the years. I appreciate you! You are locked
away in my heart, never to be forgotten. I am forever grateful to my parents
for teaching me early in life the importance of self-respect and respecting
others. They taught me that true love includes loving yourself while loving
and embracing others. They also taught me that love is colorblind. I pray you
encounter the best that the world has to offer. Seize the moment to change a
life and make a career in something that you love.
I shall never forget you.

Attorney discusses law and economy


BY JAMES WILLIAMS
Monitor Editor
Attorney David Redfearn
spoke to the Keystone Heights
Rotary Club last week, tying
current trends in any criminal
or family law practice to the
economy.
, Redfearn's"presentation was
the latest in a year-long Rotary
perspective on Lake Region
businesses,government,schools
and civic organizations.
Redfearn, who moved
back to the area about a year
ago, reminded his audience
that several members of his
family had served as the club's
president in years past. He is
the local organization's newest
and probably its youngest
member.
Redfearn said his focus is
on criminal and family law,
and he had a different clientele
with different sets of problems
than if he were practicing in
Orlando or Jacksonville.
The young lawyer said that,
while real estate law was not
his- area of specialization, he
does have a large number of
clients facing foreclosures.
This, Redfearn said, was the
local impact of the implosion
of securities investments, many
of them mortgage-backed


securities.
Compounding
the problem was
the past promise
of adjustable
rate mortgages,
which were
fine when
the mortgage
rates were
low. However,
many of those
mortgages
are now
beyond many
homeowners'
ability to pay.
To make matters
worse, many
middle-class
residents with
modest homes


David Re


were now out of
work.
While some observers are
saying that the economy has
bottomed out and will begin
to rise, Redfearn said he is
skeptical.
Thirteen percent of all
homeowners across the U.S. are
now behind in their mortgage
payments, he said. That's up
148 percent from the same rate
during 2006-2008.
Thousands of homes have
already faced foreclosure filings
in Clay County, he added.

Redfearn's
clients are

Affairs,

issues.
Criminal
Behavior in the
Lake Region is
Mostly limited
- to petty
thievery, drug
edfearn use, abuse and
trafficking,
Redfearn
said. His perception is that
local drug traffic is most
often methamphetamines and
prescription or other non-legal
drugs.
Both divorce and crime are
recession-proof, and are always
present, he said, given that now
50 percent of all marriages end
in divorce, recession or not.
In fact, the down economy
may make feuding married
couples delay a separation or
divorce, since one or the other


may have to leave, the home
and the cost of living a single
life can go up. However, .the
longer the unhappy couples.
stay together, the more prone
to domestic abuse they can
become.
He cited a comment by
Sheriff Rick Beseler at a Rotary
meeting earlier'this year. While
the rate of local petty criminality
was remaining steady, Beseler
said,, domestic violence, such
as child and spousal abuse was
climbing.
One less-discussed effect
of the economy on the legal
profession, Redfear said, was
state and local government
cuts to public prosecution and
defense offices.
'As court funds are cut back,
fewer cases are brought to trial
or brought to trial in a timely
fashion. Redfearn said the
legal professions are starting
to press state legislatures not
to pass more bills declaring
more activities a crime, if
the legislature can't fund the
judicial system tq prosecute
those new crimes.
Some types of petty crimes
may not be tried at all, he said.
Other criminals will be held for
trial for longer periods of time.

."I enjoy showing the beauty
of family ties within every

said. "I hope some of the
images will inspire others to be
more appreciative of families
found in nature and to help

interested in photography. He
ventured out into the rural areas
surrounding Melrose and began
noticing the distinct family
rituals of Florida wildlife.

Monitor 'Editor
The Keystone Recreation
Association's fall softball,
baseball and T-ball- season
runs from October through
Thanksgiving.
President Shannon Bishop
and Treasurer Jennifer Fender
were at the Little Rain Lake
Park clubhouse last weekend,
signing up young players.
KRA offers teams for boys
and girls from four to 16 years
of age. Registration is $65 per
child. Skills and evaluations
will be held at the park on
Saturday, Sept 12, beginning
at 9 a.m. The first game is
scheduled the week of Oct. 3.
Bishop said last week that
registration for the teams was
still in the slow stage, but the
organization gets its biggest
boost once kids are back in
school.
The KRA had a very
successful spring season,
with more than 260 kids in
the program and a first-place
district winner, the Rookie All
Stars, who were undefeated 'in
the playoffs.
Best of all, though, Bishop
said was that she thought the
recreation program might
be over its rough patch


administratively speaking.
Several years in a row, KRA
was being swamped with high
electricity costs to provide
lighting for the park. In
addition, leadership threatened
to resign each year unless new
blood ,stepped in to help keep
the organization going.
"I think what happens is that
people get involved as long
as their own kids are in the
program, but when the kids
get older, the parents are ready
to step down," Bishop said.
"Now all of us have kids in the
program again and we seem to
have plenty of parent support."
The organization has also
made changes, aligned with
other organizations for use of
the park and negotiated with
Clay Electric to bring utility
costs down.
Still, KRA is looking for
donors to sponsor a child, a
team, or a field, with a variety
of contribution levels for each,
ranging from $50 to $1 ;000.The
youth sports group is always
interested in volunteers to help
out with teams, administration
or the concession stand.
For further information, call
(352) 473-4400 or visit the
clubhouse at Little Rain Lake
Park Saturday mornings from 9
a.m. until noon.

LBES gets new assistant principal in Rimes


BY TERESA STONE
IRWIN
Time's Staff Writer


A new face parents and
students will see this year
in the administration office
at Lake Butler Elementary
School is that of Stacey
Rimes. Although Rimes, 41,
is the school's new .assistant
principal, she is not at all
new to the Union County
School District.
Rimes joins the elementary
school after teaching for
16 years at Lake Butler
Middle School, where she
was perhaps best known
to students as Mrs. Spitze,
prior, to her marriage to
Travis Rimes in August of
last year.
Rimes graduated from
Bradford High School in
1986. She attended Santa
Fe Community College
before transferring to the
University of North Florida
in Jacksonville where she'
received her bachelor's
degree - in elementary
education in 1992. She
went right to work at Lake
Butler Middle School as
a fifth-grade teacher. She
taught fifth graders for 13
years, then, in 2005, Rimes
became a sixth-grade math
teacher, a position in which
she remained until receiving
the administrative position
at'Lake Butler Elementary
School.
Rimes began the quest
to . further advance her
career in 2006 when she
began working toward her
master's degree in education

force against an inmate was
investigated. Charges . were
eventually filed against the.
officers who were all fired on
May 7.'
Turning themselves in to the
Union County Jail and booked
on one count each of felony
battery on a prisoner causing
malicious great bodily harm
were Sgt. . Daniel Ledwith,
Officer Clayton Lee, Officer
Marcel Lizotte and Officer
Durrell Warren. Lee was also


leadership from Florida
A&M University. She
received her degree this past,
May, and the timing could
not of been more perfect:
the elementary school's
longtime Assistant Principal
Carl Drake retired at the end
of the 2008-2009 school
year and Rimes was one
of a number of applicants
who sought the job. Drake
has since been reassigned
in the district under the
state's DROP program as
a teacher at Three Springs
of Union, a medium-risk
secure residential facility for
juvenile sex offenders..
When reflecting upon her
long teaching career, Rimes
said she was often faced with
students who first entered
her classroom saying they
had always hated. math.
* "The challenge for me
was to present the material
in a non-threatening way to
alleviate their apprehensions
about math. Nothing was
more rewarding than to
witness those same children
'become successful math
students," she said.
When the district's teachers
returned to school last week,
Rimes and Principal Lynn
Bishop were right there
among the elementary
school teaching staff of 76,
participating *in a grueling
week of staff development
days. Bishop said she
feels that by doing so, the
administrators are better
able to support the efforts of
teachers in the classroom.
Rimes said she is excited


charged with an additional
felony count of aggravated
battery with a deadly weapon.
The cases were referred to the
State Attorney's Office.
The officers involved in these
incidents had between six and
25 years of service with DOC.
In July of this year, former
FSP Officer Paul Tillis was
sentenced to three years in
prison for violating the civil
rights of an inmate. According
to court records, in August
of 2005, Tillis intentionally
poured hot water onto an
inmate's chest as he lay of
the floor of his cell, feigning
a suicide attempt. Tillis did
not immediately seek medical
attention for the inmate.

to be working with Bishop.
Together, the women are
in charge of just over 900
elementary school students.
This isn't the first time Rimes
has had the opportunity to
work alongside Bishop.
"Mrs. Bishop and I taught
fifth grade together at the
middle school for several
years," said Rimes. "I have
a newfound respect for her,
as I observe her dedication,
work ethic and knowledge of
what is necessary to operate
a successful school."
Additionally, Rimes said
she feels very appreciative
of the encouraging support
Bishop and the entire office
staff at the elementary school
have extended to her as she
becomes more acclimated to
her new position.
One of her first goals

Extra caution should be used
when a school bus is present
on the road. When a school
bus stops, motorists must stop.
Never pass a school bus that is
loading or unloading children.
For those students who walk
to and from school, parents
need to talk to their children.
and remind them to only use
school guard crossing areas at
busy intersections.
To further increase student
safety, York. said sheriff's
deputies will be stationed in
-the roundabout'in front of Lake
Butler Elementary School's
cafeteria to keep parents from


.using the area as. a student drop
off.
A number of parents
continue to use this area to
drop off their children in spite
of administration's numerous
requests not to do so. The
roundabout is extremely
dangerous for students as
vehicles are continually darting
away from the curbsides into
the paths of walking children.
Please remember this area
in front of the cafeteria is
designated. for visitor parking
and. delivery trucks only.
Curbside parking is also not
permitted. The designated
student drop off is located in
the bus ramp area where there
are a large number of teachers
and other staff members who
readily assist getting students
safely to class.


Get over the idea that only children should spend their time
in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to
learn, and this will mean all your life.

Bradford's Sims takes active role in combating cystic fibrosis


:BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
'Lawtey resident and 2009
Bradford High School
graduate Katelyn Sims wants
to make great strides toward
finding a cure for cystic
fibrosis and hopes her efforts
in establishing a Cystic
Fibrosis Foundation Great
Strides walk in Bradford
County, as well as speaking
opportunities as the
foundation's newest
spokesperson, will help toward
that end.
The inaugural Cystic
Fibrosis -Foundation Great
Strides walk in Bradford
County !will take place
Saturday, Sept. 26, with
regisTration at 8 a.m. at Shands
Starke. The walk will begin at
9a.m.
S"It's exciting," Sims said. "I
look forward to it, to just see
how many people from the
community are going to get
together and help."
Raising money to help find a
cure for cystic fibrosis is
important to Sims. She was
diagnosed. with the disease at
the age of 4. She-stays at the
hospital- two. weeks at a time
every two months, receiving'
intravenous medication and
breathing treatments, .and
undergoing respiratory therapy
and physical therapy.
S"The doctors, they just start
coming in at 6:30 in the
morning. They come in all day .
long," Sims said.
r Still, Sims has made the
most of her life, participating
in cheerleaditig and, softball! in
school and competing in
pageants. (she was crowned
this year's Bradford-Union
Strawberry Queen). However,.
she would like forthere.to be a
day when children can do
those activities arid more
without having to go. through
what she has because of cystic
fibrosis. That's why raising
money to fund a possible.
medical breakthrough is sb
important to her, .,ji lher..r
not she's around to take
advantage of that
breakthrough.
"They won't have to grow
up with all of the hospital stays
and doctors' visits," Sims said
as she envisioned a day when
ther was a cure. "They can
live normal life."

had cystic fibrosis. Katelyn
said the mother's words
summed up how, she
approaches her life: "What can
you do? You don't have a
choice. You have to keep
going and keep thinking you
can do things. If not, you're
just going to give up and your
body will give up."
Life is more than
simply existing,
Leisa said Katelyn believes
God gave people liv-es-so that
they could do something with
them rather than simply
existing. If you have a disease
or something else impacting
your life, "it doesn't mean
you're supposed to sit in the
corner and give up," Leisa
said. "You're supposed to-keep
going."
Sure there have been many
frustrations, in Katelyn's life.
It's hard for her to make long-
range plans because of the
time she has to spend in the
hospital. Sometimes, it seems
she gets sick at the worst
times, she said. She could not
go off with her friends
anywhere for spring break this
year. She missed going to
church on Easter.
"It's very, very aggravating
because you never know,"
Katelyn said.
Yet Katelyn's determination
seems to overcome any
setbacks. She said she entered
the hospital earlier than she
normally would have at one
point last year so she would
not miss her high school-
homecoming festivities. She
was part of the homecoming
court, plus she wanted to be
with the rest of her varsity
cheerleading squad as she was
a captain.
"I had . 25 cheerleaders
counting on me to be there,"
Katelyn said. "I got put in the
hospital the week before just
so I could make it to
homecoming. I had to go right
back in after homecoming:'
One hospital stay occurred
before she was set to compete
in a pageant. She found a
vacant room in the hospital
during evenings in which she
practiced her talent routine.
"I've pretty much been able
to do what I wanted to,"
Katelyn said of her many
activities. "I think softball was
the hardest thing for me to do,
but ,made,it t~irgu.4t. Ity w,.
just all that running. In
cheerleading, we had to run,
but it wasn't near as much as
we had to run in softball. I did


Katelyn Sims was a member of last year's
homecoming court at Bradford High School. She
went into the hospital earlier than normal for
treatments and therapies so she could take part in
the festivities.


it. I did it just to say I coi.ld do
it."
Katelyn has been active
despite the fact she was told by
doctors she would not live past
the age of 12. Later, she heard
she would not make it past 16.
"I learned at a young age,
that doctors aren't always
right," she said.
Still, others with cystic
fibrosis who grew up with
Katelyn at Wolfson Children's
Hospital are no longer here.
Five deaths, ranging in age
from 17 to 22. It's something
Katelyn has reflected upon.
Why is. she still here while
they're gone?
"I always thought I had a
purpose in being here and that
there was something I had to
do," she said.'"Now, it seems
like everything is starting to
fall int6 place with the national
spokesperson thing. That just
came out of nowhere. I wasn't
too sure about it at first. Now,
it's something I really want to
do.
"Maybe my purpose is just
to help find a cure, raise the
money and inspire people."

Spreading the word,
working for a cure
As a spokesperson for itie
Cyste . Fib6sis .Foundation,
Sims has the opportunity to'
talk to others about the disease.
She has appeared before civic
service groups such as Kiwanis


and Rotary clubs and has.
spoken at churches. She will
appear at a Jacksonville
Jaguars tailgate party Sept. 13
and will serve as the
ambassador for events
celebrating Wolfson
Children's Hospital's 55'"
anniversary in January.
Other than that, Katelyn said
she has no real set schedule as
far as spokesperson duties go.
She just receives phone calls
every so often asking her if she
is willing to participate in an
upcoming event.
She's enjoying her role as
spokesperson so far, but Leisa
said she believes Katelyn was
terrified of the role at first.
"I think she didn't think she
was good enough," Leisa said.
"It's a big step, but she wants
to be the best one they've ever
had."
An live appearance with
Chuck Kramer on Starke's
WEAG radio station gave
Katelyn some confidence,
Leisa said. Katelyn was scared
because she didn't think she
could keep from having a
coughing fit during the 15
minutes she was to be on the
air. She made it through the
interview with Kramer,
though, and called her mom
afterward to tell her about it.
"She said, 'When I made it
through that 15 minutes, I
knew I could make it through
anything.' That's when she
realized it was OK, that God


Approximately 30,000 U.S. children and adults

have cystic fibrosis, a disease in which a
defective gene and its protein cause the body to
produce a thick, sticky mucus that clogs the
lungs, obstructs the pancreas and stops natural
enzymes from helping the body break down and
absorb food. An additional 10 million people in
the U.S. are carriers of the defective gene, but
do not have the disease.

would get her through it,
regardless of what it is or how
hard it is," Leisa said.
In her role as CFF
spokesperson, perhaps Sims
can inspire people just as she
has in Bradford County and
the surrounding area. Leisa
said she hears from people all
the time who have cited
Katelyn's tenacity as a positive
influence on their lives. In fact,
since Katelyn does touch so
many people's lives, support
Sfor the upcoming Great Strides
walk has been so great that
Claudia Weriher, the executive
director of the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundations', Florida
Chapter- North Florida
Office, has said this could be
the foundation's biggest
inaugural:walk, Leisa said. As
of now, it is anticipated 300-
500 people will show up for
the event.
"We have :a great
community here," Leisa said.
"We may be small, but we're
one large family. Everybody
does kind of look out for
everybody. We kind of have
each other's backs."
Some businesses have
pledged their support as well.
The Starke Hardee's is
providing breakfast for
participants, Cowboys Steak
House will provide the post-
event food and Sonny's will
provide refreshments.
Still, the event could always
use more support, Leisa said.
Those wishing to volunteer
their services may do so online
at www.cff.org. Click on'the
"Great Strides" link, then enter
"Florida" where prompted and
"Florida Chapter--North
Florida Office" as the host
chapter.
Those who want to join a
fundraising team, start their
own team or simply make a
donation toward the event may
also do so online. You can also
click on the "Great Strides"
link and do a search. under
Katelyn's name.
Katelyn has defied doctors'
diagnoses in the past regarding
how long she will live, but will
she live long enough' to see a
cure for cystic. fibrosis, the
very thing the walk is designed
to raise funds for? That
remains to be seen, but her
approach to the walk is not that
she's doing it for herself, but
for the children who will come
after her. Leisa said her
daughter's response is, "I still
did what I could. I made a
difference."

Arthur Glover


Starke man
charged
cocaine,
ecstasy
The BUSTED task force, a
cooperative effort of the
S Bradford County Sheriff's
Office, the Union County
Sheriff's Office and the Starke
Police Department, netted
another arrest Aug. 20 after
Arthur Lee Glover, 28, of
Starke sold cocaine to a
confidential informant.
Investigators with the multi-
-agency task force received
information about Glover
selling drugs and worked to set
up.a sting to catch him in the
act.
When the purchase 'was
made, Glover was immediately
apprehended by the
investigators. He was found to
be in physical possession of
some marijuana, as well as
cocaine. When investigators
learned that Glover was
staying in a local hotel, they
checked the hotel room and
found more cocaine, in both
.powder and crack form,
marijuana, ecstasy, scales and
other paraphernalia.
Glover was booked into the
Bradford.County Jail and was
charged with three counts of
possession of a controlled
substance and four counts of
sale of a controlled substance.
Total bond was set at $175,000
and he remained in jail as of
press tim e.- r"U V ' T

Man ordered
to pay
$68,000 for
killing buck
Dustin Cole Jernigan of
Haines City was recently
Ordered by Union County
Judge David Reiman to pay
S$68,000 in restitution for
breeding buck in Union "
County last year.
Jemigan is serving four
years of probation after
pleading no contest to illegally'
taking deer, trespassing while
armed and two counts of
breaking fences. He was
arrested after the head and
cape of the animal was found
in a taxidermist's shop near his
home.
The buck was a stud deer
from Shadd's Game Farm near
Lake Butler. Named Peabody,
the animal was tame and
owners said it would probably
have walked right up to
Jernigan.
The restitution amount first
asked was $80,000, and that
seemed high until testimony by
Dwight Knight, president of
the Florida Deer Association,
pointed out that another animal
of the same type recently sold
for almost 10 times as milch.
A deer'that was descended
from the same mother, and was
housed in the pen next, to
Peabody's, sold for $750,000
earlier this year.
Knight said these animals
are akin to racehorses. The
pedigree makes them highly
valuable.

Road to postseason

a challenging one


for area teams


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Every team enters the season
with hopes and dreams of
extending its season by earning
a berth in the regional playoffs,
but what kind of road lies
ahead for area teams Bradford,
Keystone Heights and Union
County as they prepare to
compete in new districts and
earn the first berth for either
program since 2006?
Union was the only team of
the three to finish last season
with a winning record, but the
Tigers, who went 7-3 during
the season, missed out on the
playoffs because of losses to
Trinity Catholic . and
Newberry. (The Tigers
finished the year with an 8-3
record after playing in a
postseason bowl game against
Baldwin.)
The Tigers lose both of
those opponents this year after
the Florida High 'School
Athletic Association's
realignment. Union will still
compete in Class 2B, but will
now do so as part of District 2.
That district also includes
Bradford, which played in
Class 2A last year, compiling a
3-7 record.
The Tornadoes and Tigers
will face two playoff teams
from last year in Florida High
(Tallahassee) and Fort White,
which combined to go 20-4.
Florida High, which competed
in Class 2B, went 9-1 during
the regular season and fell one
game shy of playing for the
state championship. Florida
finished the year 11-2 after
losing 45-21 to Trinity
Catholic (Ocala) in the state
semifinals.
Fort White, a Class 2A team
last year, went 9-1 also during
the regular season before
losing 35-7 to Pensacola
Catholic in the first round of
the playoffs.
The district is also
composed of East Gadsden
(Havana), which went 5-5 in
Class 3A last year, and Taylor
County (Perry), which went 3-
7 in Class 2A.
Bradford and Union wil..j-U
each face a district.opponent it.
also played last year. The
Tornadoes opened last year
with a 38-0 loss to Fort White,
while the Tigers capped the
regular season with a 42-6 win
over Taylor County.
In comparing Union, Florida
High and Fort White, the three
best teams in the district based
upon last year's performances,
Sthe Tigers scored 352 points to
opponents' 221, while Florida
High outscored teams 486-172

and Fort White outscored
teams 311-164. Florida High
scored more than 30 points in
10 games,' while holding
opponents to seven points or
less in.seven games, including
four shutouts. Fort White
scored more than 30 points
four times, with opponents
scoring seven points or less six
times.
Florida High is shooting for
its sixth straight playoff
appearance. The team was also
a state semifinalist in 2007 and
2003, losing to Union in 2003,
while not making it out of the
first round in 2004, 2005 and
2006.
Keystone, which played in
Class 2A last year and was in
the same district as Bradford,
is now a member of District 4
in Class 2B. The Indians are
just one of two teams in its six-
team district that did not have
a winning record last year.
Trinity Catholic and
Newberry, who were the top
two teams in Union County's
district last year, went a
combined 17-3, while
Williston and Mount Dora

a handful of Florida schools
to try out a new Commit2Bfrt
curriculum, which may be
introduced to other and
perhaps to all Florida
schools. In the program,
students make a commitment
to live a healthier lifestyle,
eat better, get more exercise
during the year.
Eckford has designed
programs to pair academics
with physical development in
young students. She has
designed programs to deal
with childhood'obesity.
She has a knack for getting
the entire school, including
the principal, involved in her
programs and physical
activities. One day last year
the entire school cheered
Principal Marcus Dooley on
as he huffed and puffed but
finished jumping rope around
the entire length of the bus
drop-off.
Now Eckford's building a
climbing wall in the school
cafeteria. It's not a vertical
wall that takes kids up to the
Ceiling. 'Rather, it's a
horizontal wall that let's kids
climb safely along the side of
the cafeteria while hanging
onto knobs-and notches
attached to pads, which in
turn are attached to the
interior concrete blocks.
"We do a pretty could job
of leg exercise and
cardiovascular, but we need
something like this to build
upper body strength,
especially in the girls,"
Eckford said.
She has been collecting
funds to buy the wall one pad
at a time, and wants it to
stretch eventually all the way
across the cafeteria.
She's ' asking parents,
teachers, staff and students to
contribute $25 and in return
they can. add .their own
handprint to tiles above the
climbing wall.
Students and staff added
their own gign above that
names the wall after her, but
she tells visitors to ignore
that and concentrate on the
colorful handprints.
"Aren't they beautiful?"
she asks. "I can't wait to see
a whole wall full of them.
They'll be a part of the
school's history, forever,"
she said.
For further information
about Eckford's wall, or to
make a contribution and
become part of the school's
history forever, call McRae

BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Te/lgraiph Staff Writer
If one's going to go through
the rigorous training and
physical demands required by
NASA to become an astronaut,
,he or she would hope that at
some point,, it would all pay
off in a trip to space.
Well, as far as Bradford
County resident Daniel
Maddox was concerned, a
dual-sport motorcycle rider
who never travels the Trans-
America Trail is like an
astronaut that never ventures
into space. That's why he and
Lawtey resident Dave Gaskins
packed their gear and took an
approximately month-long trek
across the country on their
Kawasaki KLR 650 bikes,
starting in St. Augustine aid
ending in Port Orford, Ore.
"We've both been riding
dual-sport motorcycles for a
while," Gaskins said. "This is
the ultimate-as far as
America is concerned-dual-
sport motorcycle trip. It's the
longest one you can have in
just the continental United
States."
The Trans-America Trail,
approximately 4,800 miles,
was mapped by Sam Correro
in the 1980s. Gaskins said
Correro had a dream to ride
across the country solely on
unpaved roads.
"He ordered a bunch of
county maps from all over,
intersected them, drew lines on
them and took notes," Gaskins
said.
Along their journey, Gaskins
and Maddox saw many
beautiful sights, but there were
some tough stretches along the
way. Gaskins admitted the trip
was not as easy as he thought
it would be as the trail, in
places, took the duo through
washouts and deep sand. It
made Gaskins wonder if
Correro wasn't misleading
riders by neglecting to mention
how tough the trail could be, A
man Gaskins and Maddox
talked to out West asked the
duo how long ago Correro
mapped the trail. When he was
told, the man responded by
saying the tough spots along
the trail probably did.not exist
then. ' " " '
"He said, 'Out West, things
can change with just one
rainstorm or one dry season,
and by the way the wind
blows,'" Gaskins said. "He
said, 'Don't be mad at the guy
who made the map."'
The toughest part of the trip
was probably the ride through


Daniel Maddox (foreground) takes a look at his bike,
which needed some welding work done in Colorado.


Nevada, Gaskins said. The
worst weather the duo
experienced was in that state
as heavy rains turned the sand
into. mud that was sticky
enough so that it accumulated
on the bikes and bogged the
engines down. Gaskins said he
and Maddox would have to
stop and wipe the mud from
the bikes with sagebrush.
The mud was also not easy
to keep the bike upright on.
"I fell down, I bet you, about
a dozen times on just this one
part of the trail in one day,"
Gaskins said. "It was just
ridiculous."
Cinnamon Pass in Colorado
presented a challenge as well
at an elevation of 12,000-plus
feet.
"I dropped my bike four
times going up this pass,"
Gaskins said. "When you get
up in altitude like that, your
bike doesn't have much
performance." He compared
the bike's performance at that
altitude to a person trying to
breathe at that altitude. It's a
struggle.
There were anxious
moments, too, riding along
those mountainous roads in
Colorado, and Utah, with sheer
drop-offs on one side and
mountain walls on the other.
Yet the scenery was something
to behold. Gaskins said Utah,
was much prettier than he
expected.
Then there was Oregon. It
was the prettiest state the duo
traveled through, Gaskins said.
The water made an impression


on Gaskins. He told of
stopping at a stream to wet his
bandanna. The water was so
clear that his hand was in the
water before he realized it.
Gaskins and .Maddox also
camped at Crater Lake.
,Gaksins said the water is the
"prettiest blue you're ever
going to see.".
As enjoyable as such sights
were, Gaskins said the
highlights of the trip were
making stops that gave them.
the chance to interact with
people. It was nothing for the
riders to stop and sit under a
shady tree and have someone
drive up and ask if they needed
any help. They would wind up
talking to a total stranger for
half an hour, Gaskins said.
"Everyone we met was very,
very friendly and - very
accommodating," he said.
Good thing, too. At one
point during the drive through
Colorado, the.shifter on the
bike Maddox was driving
broke. Locals pointed the duo
to two homes where men who
were welders lived. Neither
welder was home, but the wife
of one called an emergency
medical technician who had
some skills.
"He told us ahead of timje he
wasn't much of a welder,"
Gaskins said, "but he would
patch it up enough to get it on
the road."
The shifter 'broke again in
Colorado. Again, the help of
others led the duo to a man

Football is finally here, and
though the results don't count,
area teams are ready to kick
off their seasons this Friday,
Aug. 28, in preseason kickoff
classics before beginning the
regular season Friday, Sept. 4.
Bradford and Keystone
Heights will each host a classic
against Williston and
Ridgeview, respectively, while
Union County will travel to
Jasper to take on Hamilton
County. All three games,
which are composed of varsity
and junior varsity teams
playing a half each, are
scheduled for 7 p:m.
Recent history shows the
Tigers have the easier
opponent as Hamilton County
is coming off of a 1-9 season,
its third straight losing season.
The Trojans' lone win last year
was 26-12 over .Bishop
Snyder. They did not come
real close to winning a second
game, as their closest loss was
17-6 against Baldwin. The
team's remaining eight losses
were by an average score of
41-7. Six opponents scored
more than 40 points on the
Trojans.
One of those opponents was
Union, which defeated
Hamilton 40-7. The Tigers got
three touchdowns from
graduate Deven Perry, while
senior quarterback Chris
Alexander had touchdown
passes of 17, 44 and 58 yards.
Union's defense held the
Trojans to 34 yards, including
minus-8 on the ground.
The two teams played four
common opponents last year.
Besides the aforementioned
17-6 -loss to -Baldwin, the
Trojans lost 43-7 to Chiefland,
42-12 to P.K. Yonge and 28-0
to Dixie County. Union
defeated all of those teams,
Winning by scores of 42-20
(Baldwin), 47-14 (Chiefland),
38-0 (P.K. Yonge) and 35-28
(Dixie County).
Bradford and Keystone both
face playoff teams from last
year, with the Indians taking
on a Class 4A opponent in
Ridgeview that went 8-5.
Ridgeview advanced to the
third round of the playoffs
before losing 44-7 to
Seabreeze. The Panthers
averaged 25 points per game,


closest margin of defeat was
10 points (29-19 against
Orange Park).
The Panthers had two
straight losing seasons prior to
last year, winning a total of six
games in 2006 and 2007.
Keystone and Ridgeview
played no common opponents

Bradford, Keystone


offenses struggled in 2008


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Scoring last year was a
problem for the B3radford and
Keystone Heights offenses,
neither of which averaged even
a touchdown per game.
Bradford was implementing
a new offense and was not
helped by the fact offensive
coordinator Bryan Jones left
the team' in midseason. The
Tornadoes scored 18
touchdowns, 12 of which came
on the ground.
Gerald Goodman led the
team with four touchdown
runs, all of which occurred in a.
28-6 win over Interlachen.
Quarterback Trey Winkler had
three touchdown runs,
including a 60-yarder, which
was the team's longest, in a
19-17 win over Fernandina
Beach.
Scott Crews and Tramaine
Harris each caught two
touchdown passes from
Winkler to lead the team.
Crews had a 30-yard
touchdown reception in a 14-
13 loss to Keystone, but it was
Charles Jones who led the
team with a 52-yard
touchdown reception of a pass
thrown by Winkler in a 37-13
loss to Houston Christian.
Bradford's longest scoring
play occurred on special
teams. CJ. Covington returned
a kickoff 89 yards for a score
in the Houston Christian game.
Covington also had an 80-plus-
yard return for a score in a 48-
6 loss to Bolles.
Harris tied Winkler for the
third-longest scoring play on a
60-yard interception return in a
33-14 win over Yulee.
The Tornadoes have been an


aggressive defense that forces
turnovers for a number of
years now and last year was no
exception. Bradford created
five turnovers in the win over
Interlachen, which included
two interceptions by Jones.
Jones had two interceptions
in a 27-6 loss to Ribault. As a
team, the Tornadoes had four.
turnovers in that game.
Bradford's win over Yulee
featured three turnovers.
The longest scoring play the
Bradford defense gave up was
a 71-yard pass from Yulee
quarterback Petty Conner to
Derrick Peterson. The longest
score against the Tornadoes,
though, was a 92-yard
interception � return by
Interlachen's Quell Brown.
Overall, Bradford turned out
to be more of a second-half
team. There was only a nine-
point differential between the
Tornadoes and their opponents
in th6 second half as they were
outscored 85-76. Conversely,
opponents outscored Bradford
128-59 in the first half. (These
numbers do not reflect the
game against Bolles as the
scoring breakdown was not
available.)
Bradford never led at the
half in any of its losses, with
the smallest deficit being 7-0
against Ribault.

Robinson scored all
but 6 of Keystone's
touchdowns,
Keystone scored three fewer
touchdowns than Bradford,
with 10 on the ground and five
through the air.
Running )back Marcel
Robinson scored the majority


of the team's touchdowns,
rushing for nine scores. One of
his touchdown runs covered 80
yards, which tied for the
longest score from scrimmage.
That occurred in a 35-7 win
over Interlachen, as did the
other 80-yard score-a pass
from Brantley Lott to Ryan
Latner.
Robinson also had a 71-yard
touchdown run in a 17-14 win
over West Nassau.
Lott and Latner hooked up
for three of the Indians' five
touchdown pass plays, which,
beside the 80-yard play against
Interlachen, also included a
56-yarder in a 38-21 loss to
Lafayette.
The Indians had four
touchdowns of more than 40
yards each, something
opposing offenses never
achieved. Opponents did,
however, combine for eight
scoring plays of more than 20
yards, the longest of which
was a 34-yard run by West
Nassau's David Price.
The longest score against the
Indians was a 60-yard
interception return by Bolles'
Aaron Riley.
Keystone's best game as far
as creating turnovers was the
win over Bradford. The
Indians had three fumble
recoveries and one
interception.
Teams outscored the Indians
87-42 in the first half and 154-
69 in the second half.
Keystone trailed 7-0 at the half
in two of its losses (21-0 to
Ribault and 21-0 to Yulee) and
was in a scoreless tie in a 21-0
loss to Fort White. The Indians
led Fernandina Beach 7-0 at
the half before losing 20-17 in
overtime.

.Dave Gaskins laughs and gives a thumbs-up after his bike went down due to
slippery, algae-covered rocks in.western Tennessee.


TRAIL
Continued from page 7B

who was a maintenance
worker at a golf course.
"He patched it up right,"
Gaskihs said. "It lasted the rest
of the trip."
The trip was the longest of
its kind for Gaskins. (Maddox,


though, once drove his bike
from Bradford County to
Guatemala.) He has driven his
bike to Cherokee, 'N.C.,
through Tennessee and back,
while he and Maddox. both
rode to Talladega National
Forest in Alabama.
From St. Augustine, Gaskins
and Maddox drove to Jellico,
Tenn., on 1-75. They picked up
the trail in. Jellico after


switching to tires that would
better handle dirt.
Along the way, the duo
came across several "Bridge
Out" signs. Most of the time,
they had to find a way around
the bridges, but there was one
bridge at which they simply
took some nearby boards and
made a makeshift ramp to
drive over it.
"You wouldn't want to do

that with a truck," Gaskins
said, "but as light as the bikes
were, we figured it would be
safe. It turned out to be OK."
At night, Gaskins and
Maddox mostly camped. They
did sleep indoors some-they
stayed at hostels twice, for
example-but . Gaskins
estimated they camped out 15
nights of the 21-day journey.
The early stages of that
journey brought ' about
excitement whenever they
entered a new state. As the
days wore on, however, a new
state was simply just another
state.
"The small celebrations
didn't last long," Gaskins said.
"The reality was, 'We have to
get back on the road.'"
That's why Gaskins was not
as happy as Maddox was when
they finally reached Oregon.
All Gaskins could think was
that they still had to drive
through Oregon.
"I was not happy until we
finally made it to the Pacific,"
he said.
Maddox stayed in Oregon,
having driven his vehicle out
there prior to the ride and
leaving it in long-term parking,
taking a plane back home. He
stayed to tour throughout the
Northwest.
Gaskins' plan was to ride his
bike back home, but an
electrical problem while still
on the West Coast put it out of
commission. (Again, the
kindness of others resulted in a
home to stay in after his bike


broke down.) He drove a
Budget rental truck .back
home, carrying his bike in the
back, which also served as
sleeping quarters.
"I slept in the back of the
truck at rest areas for three
nights," Gaskins said. "Two
nights, I stayed in my sleeping
bag. The third night, I hung a
hammock up diagonally in
there to sleep in."
No(v that he's back home,
Gaskins, who works as a
technician with the lorida Air
National Guard, plans to
compile the information from
the journal he kept during the
trip and write a book. It was
something he was conscious of
wanting to do. before making
the trip, which is why he took
hotes and took plenty of
pictures. .
"I've read a bdnch of
motorcycle travel books," he
said. "I said, 'You know, I'd
like to do something like that
one day.' I todk notes from the
very beginning."
Now that he's ridden the
Trans-America Trail, Gaskins
has no immediate plans to do
so again. He would not rule
out a second trip completely,
but said he would do it
differently the next time. The
camping gear and equipment
he and Maddox carried made
the bikes too heavy for some
of the terrain and conditions
they drove through.
' No, if he takes the .trail
again, Gaskins said he'd want
to do it like the man and his


sons he and Maddox met along
the way. This man and his
three sons were riding the
Continental Divide Trail from.,
Mexico to Canada. However,
the man's wife accompanied
them, driving a camper and
pulling a trailer that carried.
tools, an air compressor and a
generator among other items
so that the bikes weren't
weighted down. The woman,
would drive ahead of her
husband and her sons-one
son rode with her at all
times-and have lunch and
dinner ready for them at the'
appropriate times.
The situation made Gaskins
say to himself, "We were.
idiots. That's what we
should've done right there."

trip Gaskins and Maddox via

.BHS grad
Crews will
start as
freshman for
Delta Devils
BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Telegraph Staff Writer
Scott Crews, who graduated
from Bradford High School in
May, has already earned a
starting position for the
Mississippi Valley State
University football team,
which comes as no surprise to
Bradford head coach Steve
Hoard.
Crews, who earned a full
scholarship from the Division
I-AA school in Itta Bena,
Miss., will be the long snapper
on special teams. Hoard said
the fact Crews has made such
an impression on Mississippi
Valley State coaches in a short
period of time lets you know
what he's capable of.
"Whatever the kid does is no
surprise to me," Hoard said.
Crews, the son of Roy T.
and Julie Crews, played tight
end his senior year at
Bradford. Prior to that, he was
a wide receiver and a "pretty
good" one, Hoard said. Tight
end was an area of concern as
Crews entered his senior year.
Hoard admitted he was not too
sure about moving Crews to
that position. However, the
coach did not need have any
reason to be concerned.
"Man, he had a jam-up year,
an awesome year at tight end,"
Hoard said. "He was never a
liability. He was tremendous
ali year long."
Though admitting he would
'1b't be surprised at anything
Crews accomplishes, Hoard
had to confess he did not
necessarily expect Crews to
nail down a starting position
right away. That, he said,
speaks to the heart and tenacity
of Crews.
"You can't tell him no:'
Hoard said. "He finds a way to
get it done."
Crews, who started playing
Pop Warner at age 7, played
four years at Bradford High
School after playing in the
seventh and eighth grades at
Bradford Middle School. He
lettered his junior and senior
years, receiving the scholar
athlete awards both years as
well as an Iron Man award in
2007. Crews was recognized
by the Starke Hardee's as a
Player of the Week and an Old
Spice Red Zone Player 'of the
Year last season.
The Mississippi Valley State
Delta Devils open the season
Saturday, Sept. 5, against
Arkansas State in Jonesboro,
Ark., at 6:05 p.m. That is sure
to be a memorable game for
Crews along with the Devils'
third game against Alabama
State on Saturday, Sept. 26,
which will be played at the
legendary Soldier Field in
Chicago.
. Homecoming is Oct. 3
against Texas College.
The Delta Devils play-in the
Southwestern Athletic
Conference, which is also
composed of Alabama A&M,
Alabama State, Alcorn State,
Grambling State, Jackson
State, Prairie View A&M,
Southern, Texas Southern and
Arkansas Pine Bluff.
Mississippi Valley went 3-8
last season.


BHS grad
Shannon's
team to play
on ESPNU
Venice High School, where
1993 Bradford High School
graduate Larry Shannon is the
defensive coordinator, will
play Oscar Smith High School,
located in Chesapeake, Va.,
Friday,. Aug. 28, at 7 p.m. on
ESPNU.
The game, -featuring two
standout quarterbacks, was
originally planned for an
ESPN broadcast. Venice
quarterback Trey Burton has
committed to Florida, while
Oscar Smith quarterback
Phillip Sims has committed to
Alabama.
Venice is coming off of an
11-1 season in which the
defense, under Shannon's
leadership, held seven
opponents to less than 150
total yards.
In Sims, Venice will face a
quarterback who averaged 211
yards passing and three
touchdowns per game last
year. Sims threw for 334 yards
and six touchdowns in his last
outing, a 54-24 . win over
Osbourn in Virginia's Group
AAA-Division 6 state
championship game.


Josh Weaver enters this season as a preseason Big
South all-conference selection.



Former Tornado


set for senior


season at Liberty


Bradford High School
graduate Josh Weaver will
begin his final, season at
Liberty University in a big
way when the Flames take on
West Virginia Saturday, Sept.
5, at noon in Morgantown,
W.V.
Weaver, who graduated
from Bradford High.School-in
2005, is the Flames' starting
right tackle. He is a team
captain this year for the
offense and a preseason Big
South all-conference selection.
Liberty head coach Danny
Rocco referred to Josh as a
"smart player who asserts
himself as a good leader,
bringing experience to the
offensive line." Weaver saw
action in 14 games as a
freshman and sophomore,
including starting twice as a
sophomore, before starting all
12 games last year.
Rocco, on the Liberty
University athletics Web site,
said Weaver had a "great
summer and an outstanding
spring."
"He has started a lot of
football games around here for
us, and we are expecting him
to have an outstanding
season," Rocco was quoted as

duties. She locates and shares
public resources and policy
information that she deems
useful to other teachers and
educators across the state.
In a letter written to Lake
Butler Elementary School
Principal Lynn Bishop, Gillian
Cohen-Boyer of the U.S.
Department of Education in
Washington. wrote, "We -see
this as a vital link. to your
school and district as' well as
an opportunity for Ms. Ulmer
to be able to network and share
information across the state
and in the region as well as
with the professional
organizations with which she
is associated. We have found
that it is a great opportunity for
educators to spark good
conversation on the
connections between federal,
state and local policy and how
these resources can be best be
leveraged:"
Bishop said she is very
proud that Ulmer was chosen
for the fellowship.
"Mrs. Ulmer is a credit to
her profession and to our
school system. She will have
an opportunity to - share
educational concerns on the
local, state and national level.
We. are happy she's been
chosen for such a prestigious
position."
Ulmer is the math coach at
Lake Butler Elementary
School and also the instructor


saying.
Last season, Weaver helped
the Flames finish ninth in total
offense among Division I
Football Bowl Subdivision
teams. Liberty averaged 446
yards per game, which
included an average of 213
rushing yards per game, which
.ranked the Flames 121h in the
nation.
Weaver led the team in 2008
with total plays (771). He
recorded 126 knockdowns and
did not allow a sack.
Liberty went 10-2 last year,
winning its second straight
conference championship and
finishing with a final national
ranking of 14ih.
As a true freshman in 2005,
Weaver saw playing time in
the Flames' opener, but he was
eventually redshirted. In 2006,
he played in five games before
gaining more experience as a
sophomore in 2007. He
appeared .in nine games that
year, starting twice.
Weaver will graduate in
December with plans to pursue
a master's degree in
preparation for full-time
Christian ministry.

very popular, so expect a
crowd. Hikers should come
early to sign in. The front

"For about a month we're
going to be inc6ivenienced,"
Hoard said, "but, man, that's
going to be a blessing to have
some new stuff the kids can'
use and be proud of."
Weight-training equipment
is not cheap. Hoard estimated
it would take another $13,000-
$14,000-to fully address the
weight room needs. Items such
as bars, bumper plates and
glute-hamstring machines are
needed.
Hoard said no one involved

under 20 points.
The district has a third
playoff team in Williston. The
Red Devils advanced to the
second round, earning a first-
round victory when opponent
Nature Coast Technical was
forced to forfeit the game due
to a Florida High School
Athletic Association
suspension following the
team's part in a brawl during
the regular season. North
Marion handed the Devils a
49-7 loss in the second round.
Williston outscored
-opponents-387-350 last year.
Offensively, the Devils scored
more than 30 points in seven
games, but held opponents
under 20 points just twice.
Of course, numbers mean
little from one season to the
next since they don't take into
account player losses and
coaching changes. Sure, it
would appear Bradford,
Keystone and Union have
challenging roads before them,
but maybe this is the year'one
of the three at least breaks
through and earns a postseason
berth. One never knows what
will happen until they line up
on the field and play the game.
Keystone was the last of the


begging lor money since
people are struggling right now
with the current state of the
economy. However, any
amount can be utilized.
Plus, new weight-training
equipment benefits student'-
athletes in other sports as well
as students who take P.E.
"There's no amount too little
and no amount too big:' Hoard
said. "Whatever people can do
for us, we'll be very thankful.
It's not for me. It's for these
kids and the whole school."
Anyone who donates money
toward equipping the weight
room will have a plaque
displayed recognizing them for
their efforts. Hoard said people
may even donate in someone's
memory.
Those interested in helping
out in any way may call Hoard
at Bradford High School at
